We forget that he has an NBA Championship. We forget he has been in the league just as long as the Great One, Kobe Bryant. With that said, Ray Allen is one of Jordan Brand's most successful players underneath the Jordan umbrella. Since coming into the league in '96, Ray Allen "quietly" put up big numbers with Milwaukee and Seattle Supersonics (now known as the Oklahoma Thunder) before making his way to the Celtics in 2007.
Known on the court (and on his kicks) as "Sugar Ray" Allen's consistency in putting up high-percentage shots got the attention of "His Airness" early, while Jordan was still in his prime. Jordan Brand released numerous PE's for Ray, including the 5's, 7's, 8's, 9's, and my favorite, the 13's. The Green/White 13 colorway was released to the public in 2011, but it was Ray's second time receiving those particular PE's. He first got a pair in 2005, When he played for the Sonics. One classic he wore is the Gold/Green/White XI's in September of 2011. He also rocked those same XI's and the Bin23 Gold Suede 9's at a pre-game in February of 2011. Truly Boss status!
We decided to take a look back at Ray's PE's, and how this "3 Point King" leaves an imprint in the game of basketball and our sneaker culture! - Cali "O" #TeamKickGame
